Thanksgiving is a time for friends, family, and delicious food. The last thing you want is to have to sit there and stare in jealousy as others eat the food you cannot eat because you are missing teeth. Dentures help, but they tend to have some restrictions on what you can eat as well. With dental implants in Kyle, TX, you restore your smile to a more natural appearance, feel and function. This allows you to enjoy the foods you love and smile without feeling self-conscious while you enjoy your time with your loved ones. That is why Dr. McIntyre at Clear Springs Family Dentistry recommends implants to his patients.
The Facts on Implants
As the name suggests, dental implants provide a more secure and permanent solution for replacing lost teeth. Your dentist or oral surgeon places the implant in the location of your tooth’s root. It is fused to the bone to provide the foundation for your teeth in a similar manner to your natural tooth roots. Then, a crown is placed on top of the implant, which can be fixed permanently. The final product appears more natural and has a similar function to natural teeth. As such, they provide the following benefits:
How They Improve Your Thanksgiving Meal
How do they improve your Thanksgiving? For one, you can enjoy your meal. With dentures and lost teeth, you have to adjust your diet because chewing certain foods becomes problematic. However, implants leave you with the function of your natural mouth, so you have the chewing ability to handle any of the food served on Thanksgiving. As an added bonus, you can smile for pictures without feeling self-conscious.
